Reacting to the deadly suicide bombing inside a Peshawar mosque, Pakistan Defence Minister Khwaja Asif said worshippers were not killed during prayers even in India. The suicide blast inside a mosque in Pakistan police headquarters was a targeted revenge attack, with 100 people killed. Calling for unity in the fight against terrorism, the minister said it was time for Pakistan to set its “house in order.” He urged all political forces of the country to unite against terrorists, who are targeting not a sect or particular segment of society but the entire nation. He also said that Pakistan had suffered over USD 126 billion in economic losses and 83,000 deaths including, armed forces personnel, police officials and others but the world had not acknowledged it. Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif said the terrorists want to create fear by targeting those who perform the duty of defending Pakistan. India also condoled the loss of lives in the deadly mosque attack.
